What is 'Walk for Health'?

The Walk for Health scheme is a programme of fun, free and accessible volunteer-led walks, bringing people together to socialise and motivate one another. The walks last between 30 - 90 minutes, ideal for anyone who would like to start becoming more active or keep fit and healthy. Walking can help us to feel happier and healthier, reducing the risk of heart disease and conditions such as breast cancer and dementia.

The scheme is part of the National Walking for Health network which currently has 70,000 regular walkers taking part across the country. We are passionate about setting up health walks in the beautiful district of Mole Valley. Just bring yourself, comfortable shoes and clothing, sunglasses and a bottle of water on sunny days and an umbrella and waterproofs if raining.

If you would be interested in joining us on future walks then please get in touch and we will keep you informed as our programme develops.

Changes and additional walks

The Mary Frances Trust Leatherhead walk on Saturday 11th May will be an extended walk from Leatherhead to Bockett's Farm and back. Start details will remain the same, 11am outside Leatherhead Theatre, but return to Leatherhead will be 1pm.

Volunteer Walk Leaders Needed

We can only set up new walks and develop our programme with the help of volunteers. Each walk has a Volunteer Walk Leader and Back Marker to enable each walker to go at a pace that is comfortable for them. Training, support and equipment is provided for all volunteers. If you are enthusiastic about walking, would like to help others get active and can give one morning, afternoon or evening a week then why not get in touch? Walks can take place anywhere in Mole Valley, during the daytime or evening and are a great way to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

For more information, please contact Estelle Holmes at estelle.holmes@molevalley.gov.uk or 01306 879292.
